An ArmorShield™ RFID Blocking Secure Card Sleeve will protect your identity from being stolen electronically.

Thieves can steal your credit card information in many ways, and you and your clients probably need identity theft protection. Listed below are a few of the different methods identity thieves are using:

  • Dumpster diving to get credit card information from old receipts
  • Someone hacking a website of a bank
  • Dishonest clerk or waiter taking a picture of your card
  • Phone calls that offer free or discounted travel packages and ask for credit card information to hold your spot
  • Email threats that say your account has been deactivated or some false statements that your card has been recently used for the following. To verify or assist you your account information is requested
  • Your RFID cards information has been electronically pick-pocketed. Technology exists to steal your RFID card information, and your credit card has never left your wallet. Thieves can steal information being a few inches from you in a crowd by using low tech devices, or thieves can use higher tech devices that can gather information from an entire stadium of fans at a football game or large concert.
